grace and not turning to God.

I came across these two quotes and thought they went well together (in an odd way). One seems to emphasize mercy/grace/God's goodness...while the other hits me over the head with the pride I so often have.

"It is hardly complimentary to God that we should choose Him as an alternative to Hell: yet even this He accepts." -C.S. Lewis, "The Problem of Pain"

"Prostitutes are in no danger of finding their present life so satisfactory that they cannot turn to God: the proud, the avaricious, the self-righteous, are in that danger." -C.S. Lewis, "The Problem of Pain"
